#HOTDOCS: “STREET GANG: HOW WE GOT TO SESAME STREET”
By Justin Waldman
Childhood can be defined by a lot of things, and different things for every person, but it is safe to say that most of us in our youth were impacted greatly by the legacy of Sesame Street. Street Gang: How we got to Sesame Street explores the creation, impact, and continued success of one of the greatest children shows of all time. If you previously saw the Carol Spinney Documentary a few years ago, do not fret as there is much more to discover, love, and learn from this new Documentary on all of Sesame Street.
The Film focuses on how Sesame Street came to be while interviewing Joan Ganz Cooney who is a Co-founder of Sesame Street and a Producer, and was able to help get the show off the ground. Street Gang: How we got to Sesame Street is a beautiful portrait of a show that has a place in many hearts.
Sesame Street taught us about love, equality, death and so much more. Sit back, relax and enjoy the ever endearing Documentary on this small New York community with everyone from a grouch to the worlds friendliest bird.
